This  dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born  with two legs.  He, of course, could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.  

His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was  thinking of 'putting him to sleep'.

But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted   to take care of him.

She  became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by  himself.  

She  named him 'Faith'.

 In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the  movement. 
Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for  him for standing up and jumping around. 

Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk. 

Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward.  

After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human  being.  

Faith loves to walk around now. 

No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.  

He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and  

Has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.  

There is now a book entitled 'With a Little Faith' being published about  him. 

He was even considered to appear in one of the Harry Potter movies.  

His present owner Jude Stringfellew has  given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect  soul'.  

In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better  you just need to look at life from another direction.  

I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful  day. 

Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of  life.

The poem - It was written by an African Kid.


When I born, I black

When I grow up, I black

When I go in sun, I black

When I sick, I black

And when I die, I still black.


And you white fella

When you born, you pink

When you grow up, you white

When you go in sun, you red

When you cold, you blue

When you scared, you yellow

When you sick, you green

And when you die, you gray






One day a young lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?"
He said "keep driving".  Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was
Getting worse.
"What should I do." The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.
She told her dad, "I must pull over, I can barely see ahead.  It is
Terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"
Her father told her, "Don't give up, just keep driving!"
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she
Could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on
Dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, "Now you can pull over and get out."
She said "But why now?"
He said "When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is  now over.
This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "hard times".
Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up. You don't have
To...if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine
Upon your face again.
